Kinder to school transition

At Bunyip Primary School we try to make your child's entry to school as easy as possible. As part of this program we have organised several events to make this transition the best that it can be. These visits are intended to familiarise the children with school buildings, playgrounds, teachers and other children. Please mark each of these dates on your calendar so that your child does not miss out on any of the valuable sessions we offer.


Week beginning 5th August

Prep visits

All of our Prep students and teachers will be visiting Bunyip Kinder to have lunch with the kinder students.


9am—10am Wednesday 4th September

Kinder students and their families are invited to attend the school for a tour by our School Captains and share a healthy snack from our canteen.

12pm—2pm Friday 11th October

Bunyip kinder students will come to Bunyip Primary School with their kinder teachers. Other kinder students are also welcome to attend. We will eat lunch together and join in some fun classroom activities. We will then play together on the playground equipment.

All kinder students are invited to visit our school with their parents. Kinder students will meet some Senior School students who will be there to help them when they start school next year.
